Maximising value and finding the right fit

We introduced Bowman to various potential international buyers. It was key to maximise the value of the company and to find the right strategic fit to enable further growth.

How we helped

We generated significant strategic interest in the company, driving competitive tension, leading negotiations as well as advising on the tax aspects of the transaction.

The preferred bidder and eventual acquirer was Solina Corporate SAS, a European producer of savoury solutions for the food industry, majority owned by Private Equity firm Ardian.
